  What is an ATAR
  Course rules

This course may not be available to international students. Please see the list of distance courses (i.e. online and taken outside Australia) that are offered to international students

The Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws with Honours is an on-campus 5-year full-time course offered by the College of Science and Engineering and the School of Law and is available at Hobart. The first year only is also offered at the Launceston and Cradle Coast campus. This course may be studied part-time.

This course entry refers to the fifth/final year of the Law program which is the Honours year. Please see Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws 63L1 for information on the first four years of this course.

Students are invited to transfer to the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor or Laws with Honours (L4S), five year program, in their final year of study.

The objectives of the combined degree courses are those of the component degrees. Reference should be made to the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Laws course entries.

The Bachelor of Laws Honours course is the basic academic preparation for persons who wish to enter the legal profession and other careers involving legal work. The course also has wider applicability in developing the attributes and skills inherent in a general university education. Students develop the values and intellectual abilities necessary to marshal facts and to critically assess and evaluate information, theories and doctrines thus preparing themselves for a variety of career roles.

Learning Outcomes for the Law Honours year are as follows:

  • Understand the fundamental areas of legal knowledge.
  • Understand the broader contexts in which legal issues arise.
  • Identify and apply the principles and values of justice.
  • Possess the intellectual and practice skills to research, evaluate and synthesise factual, legal and policy issues.
  • Apply legal research and reasoning to deliver evidence based responses to legal issues.
  • Think creatively.
  • A capacity to apply legal reasoning and through research generate an appropriately creative, critical and reasoned response to legal issues.
  • Communicate in a coherent and professionally appropriate way for the context.
  • Capacity to work and learn independently – and make use of feedback and reflection to support personal development.
  • Refine research questions, identify appropriate reference sources and methodologies, distil and analyse information to produce a well justified outcome/response.
  • Act in accordance with ethical research precepts, and develop an understanding of approaches to ethical decision making.

Career outcomes

Graduates of combined degrees could expect to find open to them all the career paths that are open to graduates of the component degree courses.

A law degree is a prerequisite to admission as a legal practitioner. Today, however, employers from a widening range of disciplines value the skills that law graduates possess. A range of career choices lie open to law graduates as a solicitor, barrister, industry legal officer or ministerial adviser, as well as in legal aid, community legal centres, the Attorney-General's department, law reform commissions, consumer affairs, environment, foreign affairs, police, legal drafting, politics, banking, finance, journalism, publishing and teaching.
